WHAT ABOUT THE HOSPITAL
Anderson has secured her hospita]
Aiken is to have one. Abbeville an
Greenwod are still alive and Lauren

physicians." Too many cooks some
times spoil the broth.
But what has become of our com
mittee from the chamber of com
merce. Was it ever born at all ?
There are some two or three doz
en, more or less, organization
amongst the women of this commun
ity. We have an idea if these womei
could be induced to take hold of thi
matter that the hospital would b
We hate to see any movemen
- start out with the assurance of sue
cess which seemed to be the cas4
with the hospital movement an<
then to be told by a member of thi
committee who had the matter ii
charge and who had accepted th,
trust that the movement was stil
born in the hands of the ninetee3
physicians <f this county, and ther
was not a physician on the commit
tee either. What about the commit
tee? Is it "still born" also ?
Newberry should have a hospital
It can be built. Will the women. un
dertake it? They can raise thi
money, from the men of course, an<
what more humanitarian or blesse<
work could engage their time and at
tention? Would the committee i]
charge be willing to turn the mat
ter over to the women, or do the:
have hopes of doing something them
selves. It is too bad for Newberr:
to go to the world with acknowledg
ment of failure in so good a cause
It is not to our credit.
OLD SOLDIERS HOME.
Somebody is always- wanting t<
banish the old soldiers from thei:
*homes and their kindred to pen then
*up in a "soldier's home.'' We don'
nepd a soldier's home. It woald b
a costly experiment which would no
bring the desired result, namely
- greater comfort for those poor o:
disabled soldiers who went to batti
forty-seven years ago. If there i
an old soldier who lacks the neces
sary things of life, give him th
money and let him buy what h
wants, and let him stay with hi
ki~ndred. Nothing could be mor
cruel than to take an old soldiei- s,
far from home that he could see hi
people no mora.-Abbeville Press ani
We entirely agree wilth the Pres
and Banner. We .had not lieard o
the soldiers home idea for some tim
and really did not know that any on
was now seriously considering th
proposition. There are cases, how~
ever, where the old soldier shoul<
have more than he now gets an.
some ne doubt receive pensiions wh
* are not reallyv in need of the smal
aid given by the state.
Our idea is to levy a one mill ta:
for pensions and let it be distribui
ed under our .. present pension las
but give to the board in each count;
the amount that is raised in tha
coun'ty and in nearly all of them i
the rolls were carefully made uj
there would be a surplus which couli
be used to aid further the mor
needy. In many of the counties nos
there is an additional pension fun<
distributed which in some cases i
raised from the ordinary count;
fund or from a speci4i levy for tha
But it is evident that there is n
neeissity for an old soldiers home.
The Columbia Chamber of Comn
merce has appropriated $5,000 fo
advertising the city and for en.ter
taining visitors. This body has
good live secretary which is mor
importan~t than a big appropriation
though the money will come i
handy and will be well invested.
A good live secretary is a sine qui
non to a live chamber of commerec
in any community. A little mone:
spent for advertising is a good thin;
also. A secretary needs some mone:
at his disposal for advertising an<
for other work. The smallest par
of his duties should be to keep a re
cord of the meetings.
But there are all sorts of ideas a

A MESSAGE TO THE FARMERS
The Mail. of Anderson. S. C.. ii
an article discussing finan ces, busi
nes and crops, makes the followi.M
poi:ted O)serVatio ns
"And speakin- about holdi'n, cot
ton, we believe it is one of the first
prindiples of the ia:mers' Uni:)n
- which is back of the movement, that
the man who holds his cotton for
_ better prices must first of all take
care of his obligations. This the
farmers must do if they want to re
tain public sympathy in the fight
? they are making. If a farmer has
1. made debts due on the first of No
: vember, or on any other day, he
s should arrange for the payment of
a those debts if it is in his power to
a do so. If he wants to hold his et -
- ton that is his privilege, but he
should by all means pay his debts
. while he is doing it. Holding cotton
- is important, but the preservation of
honor and one's good name is more
impo -. ' '
Commenting on the Mail's re
marks. the Greenville News =avs:
"Our contemporary boids a cor
rect view of it. A farmer who owes
e noney to a merchant should not spe
cuiate on the cotton whieh he has to
sell without first getting .e consent
of the man towhomhe is indebted. In
a majority of cases the merchant
stands ready and willink to assist the
farmer in every way possible !o hold
up the price of cotton, but the mer
chant is entitled to. the privilege of
a say-so in the matter. Yes, 'hold
ir ecoton is important, but the pres
ervation of honor and one's good
name is more important.''"
By all means let the farmer meet
his obligations promptly to the coun
try merchant in order that the coun
try merchant may pay the manufac
t.urer and the jobbeL: and the manu
fie -e: and jobber -i7 ire Snnt:.r:
banker; and the Southern banker
pay his obligations to his Northera
correspondents, thereby preserving
the high credit that the south has al
ways maintained in order that credit
may be freely extended in turn to
- the Southern- farmer, merchant and
manufacturer next spring to carry on
- the good work of development.
Richmond, Va., Times-Despateh.
Of course. it has been understood
all the time as the policy of the Far
mers' Union that no farmer was ad
Svised to hold cotton if he owed the
e merchant or the bank unless first
1 arrangements with the merchant or
t making satisfactory arrangements
a with the merehant or bank
t er. As a rule it is not a good1
; policy to store or hold cotton when
- you owe money but if one desires to
e do so he should first arrange satis
s factorily with those whom he owes
- and who have accommodated him.

The county dispensary board of
Aiken county propose to consider the
advisability of establishing a dispen
sary in North Augusta which i. just
across the river from Augusta on the
South Carolina side. Georgia will
have prohibition after the first of
January and no doubt from a money
stand point it would be good busi
ness judgment to establish a dispen
sary in North Augusta' but if the
purpose of the dispensary system is
to regulate and control the whiskey
traffic and thus reduce the consump
tion it would not be well to establish
the North Augusta dispensary
The indications now point very
strongly to state prohibition for
According to the Anderson Intelli
gencer, only the streets on which al
dermen live are desirable to prospec
tive purchasers, and there is slight
dissatisfaction thereat on the. part of
eitigens having their washing done
elsewhere. These good citizens fret
themselves unwisely. Let the work
of improvement go ahead, and next
election, put in aldermen who live
on unimproved streets. Thus will a

the first weekly newspapers in the
state to p)ut in linotypes. Several
seni-weeklies use them, but the Jour- t

to have the necessary nerve to put in sI
type-setting machines. We congra- n
tulate these contemporaries, and hope
to follow their example in the next tl
few months. Fact is, we signed a b
contract for a machine more than
two years ago, but our present h
building was too small, so we post- S(
poned the purchase. We are now m
erecting what we hope will be a nice p1
office, and we expect to put in a lino- b
type in the next few months, also a tl
folder, and some other new machin- T
ery.-Bamberg Herald. b;
The machine is a good thing if you
have sufficient composition to keep n
it busy, but the interest on the in- t(
vestment will be about equal to the ti
pay of one printer and the purchase
of repairs and parts almost equal to w
another and your machinist operator m
will cost you as much as about two cl
other printers. But with a good . tl
operator and proper care of the ma- S<
chine you can turp out long strings. t
We have doubted whether it would a'
pay the weekly paper to put in a ma- e
chine unless the editor or proprietor '
fitted himself to operate and care ei
for it. It gives one that helpless "
feeling to be entirely at the mercy of
the machinist operator.
However, we do not see how we
could ever again get along without
one,,and we congratulate our cotem
pararies and hope they may find the
change to their advantage.
